I may be doing the driving, but my Westie insists on controlling the infotainment system. He regularly switches the music station, or even turns it off completely. Yesterday he must have been feeling frisky and turned on Sport Mode.

Nice :)

Have you noticed if the glossy plastic around the entertainment controls scratch easily from his paws? That would be my only concern. otherwise he's probably the best DJ for your music mix.

The best way I have found is to contain the dog to a specific area of the car, and then line or protect that area so there is no contact between the dog and unprotected surfaces of the car.

Of course that is easy to implement with a Westie that sheds very little (and is happy to nap quietly in his bed while traveling), as opposed to a Lab or Husky that is in a constant state of throwing off hair into the environment.

If your dog travels in the back, plastic is your friend. Hair seems to magnetically bond with carpet, so cover all carpeted surfaces in the back with some kind of liner.

That is Fergus, our 12 year old West Highland White Terrier. Fergus came to us last year after his owner passed away. He loves car rides and was a model passenger when I drove the CX-30 to Chicago in March on its maiden voyage.

Any tips on keeping your interior clean with a dog? I plan on getting a Husky later this year :D
You might want to follow the Andie The Lab YouTube channel. She does car reviews with her blond Labrador Retriever from a dog owners perspective. And, guess what? This week she has a CX-30!

our dog is also called Fergus, but he's a cockapoo. :D
